Miss South Carolina T-Shirts and Blooper Gear

When Miss South Carolina was asked the question, "recent polls have shown a fifth of Americans can’t locate the U.S. on a world map. Why do you think this is?”, Lauren Caitlin Upton, a Miss Teen USA contender, responded with the following words:

I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so because, uhmmm, some people out there in our nation don't have maps and uh, I believe that our, I, education like such as uh, South Africa, and uh, the Iraq, everywhere like such as, and I believe that they should, uhhh, our education over here in the US should help the US, uh, should help South Africa, it should help the Iraq and the Asian countries so we will be able to build up our future, for us.

Now you can celebrate the glory that is the education system of South Carolina with these funny Miss South Carolina T Shirts and apparel. There are, in fact, enough Miss South Carolina tees to have one for every day of the week (just what you need, right?).

This blue and pink Miss South Carolina t-shirt features a silhouette of a beauty pageant entrant (in this case for Miss Teen USA, of course) with a background of the United States (U.S. America). Miss Teen USA can be seen pointing to the state of South Carolina on the world map. Priceless, honestly. You'll get a giggle out of everyone with this Miss Teen USA 2007 Tee Shirt.

This vintage pin-up tee is perfect for the guys who want to get away with wearing a Miss South Carolina t shirt! Featuring a pinup model and a silhouette of the state of South Carolina, this Teen USA tee claims that South Carolina has the cream of the crop.

This classic t shirt features a picture of the earth with the United States circled. A finger points from space to ensure that the reader is aware of the location of the US on the globe. The accompanying text reads "thank you very much, South Carolina."

Perfect for future Miss Teen USA contestants or for parents who think their children aren't too swift (read: stupid), this bodysuit is another funny stab at Miss South Carolina. Oh, Miss South Carolina, you've even inspired a line of funny children's clothes!

This red South Carolina Teen USA pageant design sports a simple red image of a folded map and says, "GOT MAP?" This one is course brought to you by South Carolina and what is undoubtedly one of the greatest education programs of all time. Should we in future equip all beauty pageant entrants with world maps? Hmmm...

Get your map of U.S. America on this funny t-shirt, another fine Miss South Carolina parody item. This clever Miss Teen USA tee design features an image of the United States, with a few key areas marked. For instance we've got South Africa right about where Texas might be in an ideal world, and "the Iraq" in the midwest. South Carolina, on the other hand, is quite clearly labeled "people without maps." Other locations listed are "like such as," "the children", "Asian Countries", and "the future."

Recent polls have shown that a fifth of Americans can't find the US on a world map. Why do you think this is? Grab this humorous Miss Teen USA parody tee, featuring a world map, and give all your buddies a laugh when you wear it to the bar.

Miss Teen USA might be clever, but boy oh boy would we have a brainy gal on our hands had Miss South Carolina won the pageant. This fabulous Miss Teen USA 2007 tee is a great way to insult people who just don't "get it." And if you don't get it, then chances are you're at the butt of the joke.

Perhaps someone should start some sort of charity to help get those South Carolina teens up to date with their geography. I wonder what the slogan would be? "Donate today, 'cause someone's gotta edukate them U.S. Americans." Hmmm, we'll see. Anyway, yeah, so EDUCATE SOUTH CAROLINA!

Farewell Karl Rove!

On Monday we heard that good ol' Rove would be resigning at the end of August. And we can only be hopeful he won't re-appear in the form of a 2008 Republican campaign demon. It's a real shame Mr. Rove is resigning before we get another (I say "another" because surely there have already been dozens) chance to put him on trial and send him to prison.

So without further ado, it's time to celebrate our break from Rovedom with some anti-Rove t-shirts. This anti Karl Rove t-shirt design reads "good riddance to bad rubbish" and is the perfect way for any anti-conservative, anti-republican, pro-honesty individual to show his/her hatred for the current state of the White House. This anti Rove design is also available on loads of other apparel and gift items.

Anti GOP t-shirtThe GOP: Making Nixon look better... one scandal at a time White T-Shirt. First there was Watergate and then there was Plamegate (okay, and a million scandals in between, too).

Plame GamePlame Game Political White T-Shirt. It's time to play the Plame Game! The Players here are Karl Rove, Dick Cheney and Scooter Libby, but the scapegoat (as told by the court verdict) is certainly Libby. What about the other guilty members of the GOP?

Scooter Libby: Scapegoat t-shirt
Scooter Libby: Scapegoat (Where's Cheney?) Political Ringer T-Shirt
. Sick of the Bush administration's lies? Lewis "Scooter" Libby may be guilty regarding the case of Valerie Plame, but what about the vice president, Dick Cheney? Why isn't he on trial?

Guantanamo Suicides: Despair or a PR Move?

Described as a "P.R. move," "a tactic to further the jihadi cause," and as "acts of war" by various American spokesmen, the recent suicides of three Guantanamo Bay prisoners is ripe in the media and in the hearts of protesters across the globe. I find it incredibly difficult to believe that no one, save human rights of course, fail to grasp the possibility that these prisoners were depressed and in despair due to being held lawlessly and without hope for endless months or even years.

With around 450 detainees, only ten of which have been convicted of terrorist related activity, it comes as no surprise that people are growing more and more outraged over the insensitivity shown toward prisoners at Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba. It's remarks like the following that drive this point home:

They have no regard for life, either ours or their own. I believe this was not an act of desperation, but an act of asymmetrical warfare waged against us.

-Camp Commander, Rear Adm Harris

So here's a message to all you clever A-Rabs out there from eye-rack or any other non-christian, dark-skinned nations of the world: Whatever you do, don't you dare get depressed and consider the the option of death in the face of stress and despair; if you do, you are clearly calling for jihad. However, if you're some poor white guy in a prison hidden in the corn fields of middle America, then feel free to draw your own life to and end because clearly whitey would never be a terrorist. (read: McVeigh). But then again, whitey in the corn fields has got a great life compared to the folks in Gitmo (let's face it, folks, if the US was doing everything by the rules then they wouldn't need to keep this holiday prison retreat in Cuba, would they?).

This begs me to wonder if the US government will ever make the suicide notes (which were found) available to the public, or if the notes would take away from America's own attempted public relations moves regarding this supposed "war on terror."

Human rights campaigners across the planet have been calling for the shut down of this lawless camp, and it's certainly well past due time that something be done. We're all about public protest and voicing opinions at The Liberated, which is why we're also so big on displaying intelligent statements about the current state of affairs in the United States and their involvement in the international community. To fit the nature of this rant on the ever worsening situation at Guantanamo, here's a few anti-Gitmo and anti-torture t-shirts and the like.

The shop has a few great designs in their Gitmo section:

You can't see the text so well in this picture, but it reads "come for the bible study, stay forever."

In smaller college styled text beneath, this one reads "who needs laws?")

And a favorite bumper sticker, sure to grab some attention from the religious right, as well as some applause from the liberal left:
